I have just returned from a 2 night stay at Middlethorpe with my Mum and 2 sisters. We stayed in the cottage suite which is separate from the main house, about a 100 yard walk down a lane. It was lovely having the cottage as it comes with a garden and is very private. It was not very peaceful on... More

We stayed at the hotel for a two night break and thoroughly enjoyed it. The staff were all very friendly and attentive, without being intrusive. We were extremely fortunate to be upgraded to a suite, which added to our enjoyment. We dined at the hotel both evenings and the food served was excellent. The hotel was as expected with nice...

My husband and I visited for afternoon tea on our honeymoon as we thought Betty's was a bit of an overpriced tourist trap. The grounds are absolutely beautiful and it definitely has the wow factor when you drive up to it and walk through. The receptionist was very friendly on arrival and we were directed to the lounge area. I... More

Booked a 3 for 2 lunch meal for mum and sisters, one of the party was late due to a blow out on the motorway, this was no problem for the friendly staff, who never rushed us at all when we eventually sat down over an hour late - meal and service was excellent, in lovely surroundings, would highly recommend!...
